What are anti-wrinkle injections used for?

In aesthetic medicine, neuromodualators are used for:

  • Removing excessive expression lines and wrinkles e.g. frown lines, smile lines
  • Facial slimming by reducing muscle mass at the side of the jaw (the masseter muscles)
  • Eye-brow lifting and reshaping non-surgically
  • Upper neck lifting and to smoothen the jaw line i.e. the Nefertiti lift

There are now three TGA approved products available in Australia:

  1. The Allergan Cosmetic from the USA
  2. The United Kingdom made Galderma product
  3. And the latest from German company Merz

All 3 are available at Áda Aesthetic Medicine. The US Allergan product is most commonly requested and used in our clinic.

What is a neuromodulator?

They are naturally occurring, purified proteins that, when injected under the skin, will relax the specific muscles that are causing the excessive skin wrinkling. The result is a natural, more relaxed facial appearance.

What areas can be treated?

Common areas treated are the frown lines between the eyes, forehead wrinkles, and also “crow’s feet” lines at the side of the eyes. Off label uses include injection of some lower-face creases and sagging upper neck skin, known as the Nefertiti effect. The product can also be used to subtly reshape and ‘lift’ the eyebrows, creating a more youthful-shape. Similarly, neuromodulators can be used to lift sagging corners of the mouth and to reduce a gummy smile.  Where deep creases are present, combining neuromodulators with dermal skin fillers may also be recommended.

Is it a ‘lunch time’ treatment?

This treatment is a true lunchtime procedure with people able to return to work immediately.  This is because the treatment is relatively quick and there is minimal risk of bruising.

When will I see results?

Onset of muscle relaxation can be noticed after 2-4 days. The maximum effect can take up to 2 weeks to notice.

How long before I need to come back?

Results can last 3-5 months before needing repeat treatment.

Who will do my anti-wrinkle injections?

At Áda our experienced aesthetic physicians complete all consultations and treatments.  There are no ‘dermal or cosmetic’ injectors or nurses at any Áda clinic.

Is it safe? Are there side effects?

There are no known long-term side effects from repeated cosmetic neuromodulator use. The main risks are small bruises from the tiny needle injection. Allergic reaction is very, very rare. There is no need for allergy skin testing.

Unwanted adjacent muscle affect is possible from unexpected migration of product following injection, for example: eyelid droop after frown line treatment. This is an uncommon occurrence nowadays.  It is temporary and will disappear after a short while.
